On my 27th birthday, I made a list of things to do before 30 that would make a huge difference to my life. I decided, that I wasn’t fully conscious of my teens, and now my twenties were slipping out of view, it was time to do things that I’d always wanted to, and things that scared the living sh*t out of me, it’s now or never!
Sometimes, we all need a reminder that reality is more than the box we’ve put ourselves in. Your career is fulfilling and incredible, but life isn’t waiting for you – you’ve got to go out and get it! And if you haven’t done much, then you’ll know, just like me to get back out there and do it before it’s too late. If you don’t have a bucket list, don’t worry, here’s mine to help get you started. Have you already achieved some of these already? Let me know in the comments below!
